Summer School on Garbage Collection & Memory Management

Garbage Collection & Memory Management
Summer School
20-21 July 2004, Canterbury, UK

The performance of today's memory-hungry applications depends on
efficient dynamic memory management, whether managed explicitly through
new/delete or automatically by a garbage collector. With the increasing
use of managed code, whether Java Virtual Machines or Microsoft's
Common Language Runtime, the economic importance of automatic memory
management has never been greater.

The Summer Schoool provides participants with an opportunity to hear
leading practitioners from both industry and universities. The school
is directed at postgraduate research students, academics who wish to
get involved in this field and industrial researchers and developers
who want to apply state of the art memory management techniques to real
problems. The presenters include

David Bacon (IBM TJ Watson Research Center),
Emery Berger (U. Massachusetts),
Robert Berry (IBM Hursley),
Hans Boehm (HP),
Dave Detlefs (Sun Microsystems),
Rick Hudson (Intel),
Richard Jones (U. Kent, Canterbury),
Eliot Moss (U. Massachusetts).

The registration fee for the 2 day Summer School is 130 GBP (free of
VAT) and includes all workshop materials, lunches and refreshments,
and the Summer School Dinner on 20th July. Bed and breakfast
accommodation is also available in en-suite accommodation on campus
at a rate of 30 GBP per night.

For more details, see
or mail sc****@mm-net.org.uk

The Summer School is organised by the UK Memory Management Network
(http://www.mm-net.org.uk). We are grrateful for the kind support of
the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

Are there any known applications out there used to test the performance of the .NET garbage collector over a long period of time? Basically I need an application that creates objects, uses them, and then throws them away and then monitors the garbage collection and store statistics on it, preferably in C#. I want to know what is the longest period of time that an application may lock up while garbage collection is processing. Thanks!

Hi, My question is.. if Lisp, a 40 year old language supports garbage collection, why didn't the authors of C++ choose garbage collection for this language? Are there fundamental reasons behind this? Is it because C is generally a 'low level' language and they didn't want garbage collection to creep into C++ and ruin everything? Just wondering :)

I would need to make some high-reliability software running on Linux in an embedded system. Performance (or lack of it) is not an issue, reliability is. The piece of software is rather simple, probably a few hundred lines of code in Python. There is a need to interact with network using the socket module, and then probably a need to do something hardware- related which will get its own driver written in C.

I am puzzled. I have this object that uses a thread. The thread is encapsulated by the object, the object has Start and Stop methods to enable the client to start or stop the thread. I found that the object will not be garbage collected while the thread is running. Fair enough, the documented explanation is that the GC compresses objects on the heap and needs to update references, the references will be invalid for a couple of moments...

Hello, traditionally, in C++, dynamically allocated memory has been managed explicitly by calling "delete" in the application code. Now, in addition to the standard library strings, containers, and auto_ptrs, gurus suggest that may be better to use a reference-counted smart pointer, or a garbage-collector. But in which cases it is better to use one technique and in which cases another? IOW, which is the design criterion?

Hi all, Is garbage collection possible in C++. It doesn't come as part of language support. Is there any specific reason for the same due to the way the language is designed. Or it is discouraged due to some specific reason. If someone can give inputs on the same, it will be of great help. Regards, Pushpa

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies. I'm particularly interested in Zigbee because I've heard it does some...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
